Several sports: fencing on the terrace of the Kurhaus in Scheveningen; cycling in the Olympic Stadium (?) in Amsterdam (winner Arie van Vliet); horseraces on the boulevard near the beach; tennis; sailing in the Regenboog Klasse (Rainbow Class).

During World War II the newsreels by film producers Polygoon and Profilti were controlled by the German occupiers. Polygoon and Profilti had to work together with the German film rental office Tobis. From January 1, 1941 the newsreels were therefore called Tobis News. Until the fall of 1944 newsreels under this name were produced alternately by Polygoon and Profilti.
